The Delaware Grantmakers Association has changed its name to Philanthropy Delaware as part of a major rebranding effort. The organization, which serves as a professional group for the state's philanthropic sector, debuted its new name, look and website yesterday.
"This is a new era in philanthropy across the country, and Delaware is no different," said Cynthia Pritchard, president and CEO of Philanthropy Delaware. "This transformation more accurately reflects what we do as an organization, which is promoting effective philanthropy across many spectrums."
Philanthropy Delaware has 38 funding organizations as members, including Capital One Bank, M&T Bank, Longwood Foundation and Welfare Station. Limited membership options are now open to advisers and people seeking information on philanthropy.
"This new name and identity fit perfectly with our mission and vision," said Chris Grundner, board chair of Philanthropy Delaware and COO of the Welfare Foundation. "Through our revamped network, members will have expanded services available to them, allowing them to work smarter, and work more closely together. Philanthropy as a whole in Delaware will benefit from our unified voice for grantmaking organizations."
